This one was taken at the top of the Mountain of Bornes, near Alfandega da Fé, a small town in the North, not far from the border with Spain. It was almost sunset. It had been raining during the day but by this time the sun beams were passing through the clouds.

As I was catching up on your gallery, I found myself returning to this one tonight for it's amazing atmosphere which you've collected. That small window of opportunity was captured just right, and the choice of black & white feels to enhance the sentiment to a greater degree. Right place at the right time, yeah? :) Isn't it sweet when nature provides the pallet? A very well composed, artistic take on the stormy skies and vast landscape below. Looks to be a super place to sit back in one of those chairs and take it all in. Enjoy the new day. All the best.

Splendid landscape picture with the black threatening clouds on top but with clearing skies on the horizon.
Excellent capture of the light beams.
The tree and the chairs are placed well on the picture.
It's a bit unusual to find chairs in such a modern design on that place. I would expect to see a wooden bench there.
Best regards, Paul

Well composed and well captured these rays of sun, interesting contrast management with your b&w version, good idea.

To see a scene like this is heart stopping!
There is an atmosphere that is difficult to explain but just look at the heavy clouds and those sunbeams, like fairy ladders, linking sky and earth.
The tree is so important to your composition, it is strongly placed and gives a good, focal point to set against the light of the sunbeams.
have a great day,

Beautiful! It's a simple composition but very effective. Nice capture of the rays coming down from the clouds. Good details and nice contrast. Well done, tfs.

I love a lonely tree, and this one is so lonely :) the beams of light breaking through the dark clouds have created a mood that makes this feel like a scene from a film, and the tree is the star. These strange sloping modern chairs are so unusual and a surprising sight in this shot. The black and white enhanced the overall feeling so well. This is a cool shot, full of emotion which is brilliant when there are no people present.
Thanks as always

Clouds can be very dramatic, and I love the moments just before or after a storm. The contrast between light and dark in this photo is lovely. We can see the light filtering through the clouds perfectly. I like the lovely tree, and the two chairs waiting for a couple.

really a very nice photo, but why the deck chairs in the meadow?

Ola dear Ana
We do not often see Black & White photos from you, so when we do, we should feel lucky. I like how it accentuates the rays of sun and the textures of the undulating hills. The lone tree is also an interesting element. Well done, thanks for sharing.

tra le tue ultime fotografie mi piace in maniera particolare questa che pur essendo diversa dalle tue solite sempre ricche di colori vivaci, attrae per la particolare atmosfera che riflette molto bene quella della giornata.
Una grande semplicità si unisce ad una cura della composizione che appare essenziale e nella quale la luce diviene la protagonista trasfigurando il paesaggio din quasi ad annullare il colore rendendo perfettamente l'atmosfera del momento.
I miei complimenti
Ciao e buiona serata
